District 103 South West is committed to fighting childhood cancer.
For many years, this process is repeated every year. It was created in 2006 by the Lions Club Quinsac-Côtes de Bordeaux. Soon, several clubs in the 103rd Southwest region joined the movement.
Hope for children.
Within 15 years, a donation of €440,000 was raised through the sale of nearly 380,000 sapphires. Initially, this measure was part of a national approach to Lions Clubs, for the benefit of the “Enfants Cancers et Santé” association. Since 2018, it has targeted more local operations.
